Nest time you can not get it out of park take a look at the brake lights. If the brake lights are not illuminating than you possibly have a bad brake switch. The solenoid that holds the shift lever in park is released when the brake pedal is depressed. If the brake switch is not working the gear shift will not move.
try and push the gear shifter forward like you are forcing it into park. while holding pressure on it try pushing the button in, and make sure your foot is on the brake pedal. Some cars have a safety feature that requires the brakes to be depressed before you can shift into drive.
it sounds like the motor's tick over is far to slow when the car is put in gear if the tick over is say 750 rpm out of gear then it stalls when you put it in gear lift the tick over up to say 850 rpm the best way to set this up is have a friend sit in the car, warm the motor up, then get your friend to hold the foot brake hard on and put the car in gear, if it stalls bring the tick over up (in gear) till it dont stall,,,but hold the brakes hard on when your doing this,,,getting run over is not a nice thing to hapen to you and it wont make your day? you should feel a dit of a thump when you plop it into gear so hold the foot brake down when you do plop it in gear every time you do so, it saves the transmishion getting a thumping, all the things you have done to your car so far have only done it good, but why not change the oil and filter as well and know you have done the full monty on your car, and it wont need another service for another year or so?????
check to see if your brake lamps are working and they are not you need a brake lamp switch or you have a blown fuse. if the brake lamps work you need to check the solinoid under center console panel and see if it is getting voltage or sometimes if you have spilt soda or coffee around that area it may be sticking.
Try this. Go somplace where there are no cars, and no possibility of running into anything. Stop the car. Set the park brake. With the engine running, put the vehicle in 1st gear. Hold the foot brake pedal, and give it gas, and let out the clutch slowly.
If the engine does not stall real quick, the clutch disc is bad.
Chances are you're parked on a hill. You need someone to push on the car to take the pressure off the parking pin in the transmission. The other possible problem is there is a solenoid the won't release the gear shifter until the brake pedal is depressed. If you are pushing the brake pedal before trying the gear shift there is a malfunction in this system. This is not as easy to fix. If you aren't mechanically inclined I recomend taking that to a mechanic. If you are so inclined let me know and I can help guide you thru the steps.
